A 39-year old elementary school teacher in Navasota pled guilty to indecency with a five-year old girl and was sentenced to two years in prison in a Grimes County court session.

Roberto Andaverde changed his plea right before testimony was to be taken.  He accepted a plea deal from District Attorney Tuck McClain.  He could have been sentenced to  up to 20 years in prison.

A jury had been selected and evidence was going to be presented Wednesday.

Andaverde was a Mexican national, working legally in the Navasota school system as an English as a second language teacher.  He pled guilty to two counts involving the same five-year old girl.  He was immediately taken into custody after the pleas.  He will serve about 80 percent of his sentence and then be sent to Mexico.
